"Atlantic Park Club of New York" ? for Russian Jewish transmigrants detained in England in 1920s #unitedkingdom

The Atlantic Park Hostel for transmigrants was commonly referred to as "England's Ellis Island" in the American newspapers of the 1920s.
Hundreds of Russian Jews detained there for years due to changes in US Immigration Law eventually made it to America - and formed the "Atlantic Park Club of New York " to hold periodical reunions in the 1930s.
I'd be pleased to hear from anyone whose descendants stayed at Atlantic Park Hostel at Eastleigh near Southampton between 1922 and 1931 - or might know where the "Atlantic Park Club of New York " met and who ran it ?
